A measly half inch.

The kids were pretty bummed. It rained overnight so it was a slushy mess. Most of it has melted. Whomp whomp.
Here are a few pics from our morning.

She locked me out! Thought it was pretty funny too! Notice her outfit. That’s a skirt on top of a dress. If I  let her she’d wear that skirt everyday!

Hot chocolate saves the day!

Those curls.

She’s getting so tall!

I’m hoping this is the last snow day. And I think we’ve both had enough of winter!

Here we go Again!! Earlier this week weatherman said 3″-7″ but now 5″-10″..
Won’t believe it ’til I see it!

School was on a  2 hour delay today — which meant J’s  PreK class was canceled. Again. Poor kid has only gone one day in the last 2 weeks! District sent notice out before 3pm today that schools are closed tomorrow.
I made a special trip to the store for hot chocolate 🙂

Get ready for more snow pics! Maybe they’ll get to use their sleds on REAL snow!!

Here we go again! School canceled today. With more snow on the way, I’m thinking they won’t return until Friday.

Due to teacher work day, early dismissal, snow days and two hour delays, my kids haven’t had a full day of school since last Thursday. This whole week they’ve had less than the equivalent of two full days. It’s only in single digits right now. We aren’t northerners, we can’t handle this chill! The biggest plus side I see of all this cold weather –> I hope its killing a lot of bugs. Or bug eggs. Larvae, whatever.. Keeps the wasps away a little longer and the ants deep in the ground!

Us, in pancake form on the griddle 🙂

I do enjoy these lazy, late starting school days. Nice to not get up when it’s not dark, rushing around.

Supposedly another snow/ice storm is on the way for tomorrow…
TGIF!

Update

Another snow day. Still no power. Yesterday it was supposed to be back on this morning. This morning they’re hoping it’ll be back on later today…
We all camped out in front of fireplace.

DVD charge lasted through one full movie. After that we all crawled under covers and told silly stories. #makingmemories

Really hoping it comes on tonight because its supposed to get down to teens/single digits. Little concerned about the pipes.
My mom’s work had a two hour delay so she called and said she had a warm breakfast waiting for us. I took advantage of a warm shower!
When we left our house it was 50* ..Bit chilly! For Christmas a friend gave us a gift card to the movies so today is the perfect day to use it!

Shows about to start!

Snow Much FUN!

Today was really more of an ice day than a snow day — put we’ll take it! Kids were dismissed yesterday at 10:15. Forecast predicted an afternoon mess. Around 3pm ice pellets were pouring down and around 4 icicles were forming. This ice/rain/snow mix went on for the next 7 hours. Luckily our electricity only flickered twice.
Josh was up at 5:37am, ready to pull out the sleds that Grandma Donna gave them for Christmas. I held them off til around 9.
Pure JOY.
(Well except from one kid..)
